Casa di Accoglienza Sant'Antonio (St Anthony's Guest House) (UMA119)

Assisi Umbria

House of the Suore Francescane dell'Atonement

Casa di Accoglienza Sant' Antonio (St Anthony's Guest House) is an inviting and traditional guest house with a typical Umbrian stone facade and large common areas. Beautifully restored rooms and spaces in an historic and stunning location.

This convent is surrounded by some of the most historical churches in Assisi, the Basilica of Santa Chiara and Basilica di San Francesco. The World Heritage listed Saint Francis Basilica was built after his canonization in 1228, and completed in 1253.

The lower church hosts frescoes by renowned late-medieval artists Cimabue and Giotto. In the upper church there are frescoes of scenes in the life of Saint Francis previously ascribed to Giotto and now thought to be by artists of the circle of Pietro Cavallini of Rome.

The Basilica was restored after being badly damaged in 1997 when an earthquake hit the town.
 
Rated 4.9 out of 5
The Sisters of the Atonement have created a haven of peace and welcome for pilgrims and visitors to Assisi. If you are of faith, wish to meet others with diverse experience and similar value, this is the place for you! Sr. Suzanne Marie was heaven sent! Very clean, quiet, and up the hill to give a little workout after eating Assisi's fine cuisine. Breakfast was excellent with what one would expect, with the Sister's encouragement in sitting you with people on a similar path as you.

This was an outstanding place to stay in Assisi! The location was wonderful, Sr. Sue and her fellow Atonement sisters have created a haven in this holy town. We were blessed to be able to attend daily Mass several times in English due to Msgr. Craig Harrison being in residence while we were there. So wonderful! The meals were simple and delicious. We met lovely people each morning at breakfast and were able to enjoy the gardens overlooking Assisi and especially Santa Chiara and San Rufino - views right outside our windows. Without hesitation we know we will be back. Don't miss this wondrous place!

This was our fourth stay at St. Anthony’s. The house is beautiful with lovely gardens and picture perfect surroundings. It’s a great location for visiting other sights in Assisi. The breakfast is sufficient, the rooms are basic with clean towels and bedding. The Sisters who run St. Anthony’s and the staff are very friendly and welcome you into their home. They have various binders with local information listing restaurant recommendation, train and bus schedules,and many other facts about the area. We will return to St. Anthony’s whenever we visit Assisi it’s a peaceful welcoming stay. Best of all,Sister Sue always welcomes you with a smile!

A lovely warm calming welcome to a serene atmosphere. Absolutely perfect for us. As well as the location and the lovely garden and views etc. we also enjoyed the library very much.

Great location just a few hundred yards/meters from the old city piazza. lots of great restaurants and shopping close by. 15 min walk to the Basilica San Francesco and 30 min walk to the Rocca Maggiore. We were awakened by church bells in the morning and had the best sleep ever in the stillness of the guesthouse. Secure parking is also a plus. Sister Sue and her fellow nuns are the most gracious ever. Highly recommended. Great value.
